Do any of you use a release that you just hold in your hand for hunting? If so why use them and not one that wraps around the wrist? I am new to using a release and am trying to figure out what style to use...
I have for over 30 years. I started with a TSS revolver(no longer made). Still use it for my backup. I now shoot a Truball 3 finger caliper thumb push. But I don't hold it when hunting. I use a rope loop on my bow and once on stand and the arrow is nocked I just attach it to the loop and I'm ready to go.
I just ordered my first t-handle to switch. Reason why is because my strap release was never in the same spot on my wrist every time. Varied based on temperature (wrist swelling and expanding) and what kind of gloves / coat I was hunting in.
I just recently bought a TruBall Sweet Spot 2 and plan on using it for hunting this fall. I also bought the lanyard that attaches to it because you cannot latch the release to the loop like you can with a Carter Chocolate.
Have used a Carter Insatable before with success.....this year I am going to use my Carter Chocolate Addiction, have used a winn glove style alot, but I punch the c*** out of it, with the Carters I pull through the shot like your suppose to....Dave
